Bob & Tammie Groeneman
Bob and Tammie Joined the team in 2018. After being on staff for 28 years at the same great church in Loveland, Colorado (Resurrection Fellowship) God did the unexpected and told them to leave everything and go to California. Through multiple miracles most of their family have also landed in the central coast along with a few lifetime friends who felt the call to join the adventure. They now consider it a supernatural gift from God that they can join the work Roger, Roxanne and Daniel have built for the past years. They enjoy leading the Sunday night service at the Pearl.
Daniel was born and raised on the Central Coast of California. He graduated from Point Loma Nazarene University in 2012, and attended Bethel School of Ministry in 2013-14. He then served as an interim junior high pastor for New Life Community Church in Pismo Beach, CA. during 2014-2015.
Daniel has a heart to see people encounter Jesus and walk in faith "risk", in and outside of the church, by the power of the Holy Spirit. The simplicity of the gospel is to have a deep personal relationship with God and bring others into that knowledge. The word of God is the foundation, and loving people audaciously is our call.

"For where two or three are gathered in my name, there I am among them" - Matthew 18:20
God's hand has been on this precious chapel- Pearl Chapel by the Sea. After two attempts to destroy the building, God intervened to save His house.
A mission-style chapel was built as Shell Beach United Methodist Church in the 1940's to accomodate a growing congregation. But in 2005, this little methodist chapel closed its doors. The chapel, the school house, Sunday school building and fellowship hall were all sold to a developer. In 2007, the chapel was literally spared from a wrecking ball, when it was saved for the first time by Shelley Malcom and Garin Sinclair. With care and love, they restored and remodeled it to host community events, weddings, and the congregation of At the Cross Ministries. After 8 years, La Perla del Mar was up for sale again and facing possible demolition. But God had other plans. He inspired a vision of a studio built like a chapel.
The Lord gave us a vision and passion to bring artists and musicians together to paint, prophesy, teach and pray; to build a studio-like a chapel that would host God's presence. ... an open heaven for creativity and the living word. It was to be a gathering place for the creative arts, worship, prayer, healing, training, equipping and reaching the lost and broken.
It started with a sketch, but we soon realized building it would take too long. So the search began.. to see if a little church was for sale.
To our surprise and delight, a match "made in heaven" was discovered~La Perla del Mar. We were unable to go in and see it, but we just happened to run into the owner walking her dog, while in front of the chapel. A divine appoint, that after sharing our hearts, led us to all join hands and pray in the street! We rejoiced and thanked God for saving the chapel once again. According to Shelley, it was about to be converted to a house or torn down again. But because of our prayers, a calling and a sketch, the Lord intervened and blessed our ministry, Freedom Crusade, with Pearl Chapel by the Sea. And in turn, we want to bless Our Lord and others.
The vision for this precious pearl is to make it His house again... His dwelling place. A house of prayer to be filled with His presence. A place to serve through the arts, worship, prayer, and the Living Word~ Jesus!
Thank you Father for blessing and providing, Holy Spirit for leading us in wisdom and revelation, and Jesus for interceding and being the Truth, Life and Light.
